The Cup final was also quite typical: none of the better known clubs reached the final. Zaglebie (Sosnowiec) and Polonia (Bytom) met at the final.
Zaglebie had good season by their standards, finishing 5th in the championship. Strong year, crowned by winning the Cup for third time. There isn't much to say about them – Cups they won now and then, but for the big title they were never good enough.
The title was won by Slask (Wroclaw). Slask were never champions before, in fact the only trophy they ever won was the Polish Cup in 1976. The squad was experienced, still the same, running high, those were the best years for the Army club, playing largely second-division football not all that long ago.
Standing: Henryk Kowalczyk, Jozef Kwiatkowski, Zygmunt Kalinowski, Zygmunt Garlowski, Mieczyslaw Kopycki, Wladislaw Zmuda.
Pretty much the same boys who won the Cup the previous year, now doing even better. Few occasional national team players, but the big name is only one: Wladyslaw Zmuda. Zmuda II. Well done by the club, excellent achievement, joy in Wroclaw, all that, but the team was not all that great by European standards.
